MCLB ALbany_2019 City of Albany & Dougherty County Area Events

 

Join thousands of people in downtown Albany the first Saturday in March at the Snickers Marathon and Half Marathon, and the Mardi Gras festival. The Snickers Marathon and Half Marathon starts and ends on the Flint River in downtown as it meanders through beautiful tree-lined neighborhoods. It is a flat course and is a Boston Marathon qualifier.

The second Saturday of September brings the “Nut Roll” to Albany. The bicycling event, sponsored by the Pecan City Pedalers, brings hundreds of cyclists to Chehaw where the event starts and ends. This fully supported, fun-filled day of riding Southwest Georgia’s back roads features great food and fun.

The first Saturday night of December features the region’s largest parade to usher in the holiday season. The parade draws in tens of thousands of people beginning on Pine Avenue. The downtown will be packed full of people, street vendors, bands, floats and, of course, Christmas lights. It doesn’t feel like Christmas until the parade participants stroll through the streets of Albany and Santa arrives at the finale of the parade.
